The Dalai Lama has praised Russian President Vladimir Putin for his brave and relentless crusade against ISIS in the Middle East, saying that he believes that the U.S. government is responsible for their creation.
His remarks came at Moscow’s Bolshoi Theatre, where he inaugurated the 2nd Dalai Lama international festival dubbed “Tibet: Traditions, Art, Philosophy and Peace”.
Meanwhile, Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang called off a bilateral meeting with his Russian counterpart which was due this week in protest against Dalai Lama’s visit to Moscow.
It is for the first time that the octogenarian spiritual leader and a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, took the unprecedented step by explicitly criticizing United States and her oil-rich Saudi allies for fomenting sectarian bloodshed in Middle-East by invariably supporting hard-line militants, e.g. ISIS and al-Nusra Front.
Dalai Lama added by saying that it would be totally inane and hypocritical of Saudis to condemn recent terrorist attacks in European capitals while funneling weapons and billions of dollars to the very terrorists who perpetrated Charlie Hebdo carnage.
“…for several times I importuned President Obama to end his catastrophic support for Saudis and their terrorist proxies in the Middle-East but my appeals fell on deaf ears,” said world’s most famous exile.
